Ok, so this is a little dark and... uhm... messed up - it would have been worse with the details - but I decided to give it a try. Life at the moment has been a bit frustrating and you can only take those moments to make the best of them or release them into something by being productive. I did that with this short piece, as finding that "dark part" of myself is rather difficult any other day.
I haven't had the time to write single pieces as of lately and hence why this piece is so short and somewhat experimental. Elkantar is a "drow" (long story) character, an assassin and leader of the Zaknlyn
order that is dedicated to Cyric mainly. They're not located in one single drow city, but started in Menzoberranzan after the events of War of the Spider Queen. I'm not sure where their HQ would be. I'll come up with something, or you guys can come up with something too.
He's beyond insane as he holds no soul. This piece uncovers a bit of his background, which is relatively close to Grey's own. In other words, Elkantar is what Grey would have or could become if he gives in to his own insanity. In fact, The Master Assassin and First Shadow of the Zaknlyn
(his titles) was Grey's superior for quite a long time as Grey used to belong to said order. Elkantar is just an effect to a cause stated in the books mentioned above (great books, go read them).
Anyways, let me know what you think of this my experiment.
EDIT: I found the perfect place for their HQ. Inspired by:
- Wildfire - Sonata Arctica
- Don't say a word - Sonata Arctica
Both from the same album. Really good Elkantar and Grey are my property. Please no stealing (they took time to make).
The songs... Sonata Arctica - they're win.
War of the Spider Queen belongs to WotC.
